內容簡介

《紐約時報》暢銷書,即將於TNT電視網上映的影集《沉默的天使》原著小說。

「第一流的犯罪與懲治小說,不到最後一頁,讀者不會知道答案。」-《娛樂周刊》

「卡勒.卡爾精彩的時代驚悚小說,將我們帶到現代連續殺人犯初生成的年代。」-《底特律新聞報》

《精神科醫師》(The Alienist)在1994年出版時造成了一股轟動,並且高踞《紐約時報》暢銷書排行版有半年之久,在圖書界獲得好評,並且銷售了數百萬冊。這部現代經典,已經成為讀者評判歷史懸疑小說好壞的標準。

1896年,紙醉金迷的紐約市,報社記者摩爾被好友克萊茲勒叫到一個犯罪現場,那是一具被嚴重支解的青少年屍體,他被隨意丟棄在尚未完工的威廉斯堡橋上。就從那個時候開始,報社記者摩爾與精神科醫師克萊茲勒根據犯案細節對嫌犯作心理側寫,啟動了犯罪學史上的革命。在尋找真兇的過程裡,他們回到了兇手被痛苦折磨的過去還有他被扭曲的心靈。在追兇沒有結束前,兇手將再次大開殺戒。

這本充滿歷史細節的小說,步調快速且令人愛不釋手,它描繪出紐約的流金歲月,大都會中的豪宅與陋屋,貪污的警察,浮誇的幫派分子,華麗的劇院與醜陋的酒吧,在小說中一一呈現。小說要探問的是,殺人兇手是天生的還是後天養成的?致命且意想不到的結局,不到最後你絕對無法知曉!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • SOON TO BE A TNT ORIGINAL SERIES

“A first-rate tale of crime and punishment that will keep readers guessing until the final pages.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Caleb Carr’s rich period thriller takes us back to the moment in history when the modern idea of the serial killer became available to us.”—The Detroit News

When The Alienist was first published in 1994, it was a major phenomenon, spending six months on the New York Times bestseller list, receiving critical acclaim, and selling millions of copies. This modern classic continues to be a touchstone of historical suspense fiction for readers everywhere.

The year is 1896. The city is New York. Newspaper reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned by his friend Dr. Laszlo Kreizler—a psychologist, or “alienist”—to view the horribly mutilated body of an adolescent boy abandoned on the unfinished Williamsburg Bridge. From there the two embark on a revolutionary effort in criminology: creating a psychological profile of the perpetrator based on the details of his crimes. Their dangerous quest takes them into the tortured past and twisted mind of a murderer who will kill again before their hunt is over.

Fast-paced and riveting, infused with historical detail, The Alienist conjures up Gilded Age New York, with its tenements and mansions, corrupt cops and flamboyant gangsters, shining opera houses and seamy gin mills. It is an age in which questioning society’s belief that all killers are born, not made, could have unexpected and fatal consequences.

Praise for The Alienist

“[A] delicious premise . . . Its settings and characterizations are much more sophisticated than the run-of-the-mill thrillers that line the shelves in bookstores.”—The Washington Post Book World

“Mesmerizing.”—Detroit Free Press

“The method of the hunt and the disparate team of hunters lift the tale beyond the level of a good thriller—way beyond. . . . A remarkable combination of historical novel and psychological thriller.”—The Buffalo News

“Engrossing.”—Newsweek

“A ripsnorter of a plot . . . a fine dark ride.”—The Arizona Daily Star

“Remarkable . . . The reader is taken on a whirlwind tour of the Gilded Age metropolis, climbing up tenement stairs, scrambling across rooftops, and witnessing midnight autopsies. . . . A breathtaking, finely crafted mystery.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Gripping, atmospheric . . . intelligent and entertaining.”—USA Today

“A high-spirited, charged-up and unfailingly smart thriller.”—Los Angeles Times

“Keeps readers turning pages well past their bedtime.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Harrowing, fascinating . . . will please fans of Ragtime and The Silence of the Lambs.”—The Flint Journal
